- in Fun, Hobbies, Outdoors

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens hosts the MOLTO BELLA AUTO SHOW on Sunday, September 9, from 10 am – 4 pm. In its sixth year, and the first year at Stan Hywet, Molto Bella features more than 400 cars on the Great Meadow – including exotic sports cars, rare classics, vintage Ferraris, and custom cars. The event also features food, music and entertainment, as well as tours of the historic Manor House and gardens.

Stan Hywet is located at 714 North Portage Path in Akron, Ohio.

Created by Frank Todaro in tribute to his father, Mel, who passed away from kidney cancer, Molto Bella is presented in partnership with the Kidney Foundation of Summit County as a benefit for both organizations. The show has grown rapidly thanks to participation by the Ferrari Club of America.

“Stan Hywet provides a spectacular backdrop for Molto Bella. It’s perfectly suited for the display of beautifully designed vehicles, as well as good food, beverages and the friendly camaraderie of this non-judged show,” says Sean Joyce, President & Executive Director of Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens.

A dinner and auction take place the evening before at Todaro’s Party Center, as a benefit for the Kidney Foundation of Summit County.

Sponsors for the Molto Bella Auto Show include BMW of Akron, Kidney Foundation of Ohio, Inc., JWD/J.W. Didado Electric, Montrose Ford of Fairlawn, RM/Sotheby’s, Summit Racing Equipment, Todaro’s, Volkswagen of Akron, and Westside Jaguar.

Tickets for the Molto Bella Auto Show are $14, adults; $6 youth (6-17) and free for children ages 5 & under. Stan Hywet member prices are $11 adults and $5, youth ages 6-17. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling 330-315-3287.
